Boehlkea fredcochui
Cochu's Blue Tetra
breeding notes

BREEDING: Soft water is required for breeding this species. The female lays pre-fertilised eggs on the underside of leaves, so having broadleafed plants such as Anubias is an advantage. The leaf can simply be removed to allow the fry to be raised separately. Paramecium is best offered as a first food for the fry.

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Feed a varied diet Flake food is an excellent nutritionally balanced food for tropical fish, but all species relish a varied diet. Where appropriate, try feeding commercially bought frozen livefoods, very small pieces of shellfish (mussel, prawn etc) or culture your own Daphnia, brine shrimp, or worms.
